In 2008, Eurovision veteran Tamara Todevska placed tenth in her semi-final at Eurovision. But, owing to a change in rules that year, she missed out on a spot in the final when the juries chose to “save” Sweden’s Charlotte Perrelli. “It was awful for me,” she tells Wiwi. “I was so disappointed.”
But now Tamara is back providing supporting vocals for her older sister Tijana Dapcevic and the Former Yugsolav Republic of Macedonia. They compete in the second semi-final tonight. They aren’t just thinking about qualifying—they’re thinking about going all the way. “We’re aiming for Top 5 or Top 10!”
Can they do it? Are you feeling their performance? And don’t you just love Tamara?!
Here’s her Eurovision 2008 performance.
